Tasting the Elegance: Highlights of Lourens Family Wines Lindi Carien 2022 from Western Cape, South Africa

By | 10 June 2024

Stumbled upon this wine at the Kews’ notable Good Wine Shop. After trekking from Twickenham to Kew and a garden visit, it was a pleasure to discover that one can purchase a bottle, pay £10 for corkage, and enjoy it on the premises or just outside along with a selection of cold dishes. Perfect for sharing between two on a Sunday post an 18 km journey. This is crafted by Franco Lourens, whom I’ve had the pleasure of tasting with in South Africa. Priced at £30 for take away, or £40 to relish there.
